On 13 February 2020, Wingecarribee Shire Council declared a Climate Emergency, joining numerous global jurisdictions in committing to action against climate change.

The Wingecarribee Council is dedicated to urgent climate action, focusing on reducing the environmental impact of its operations and supporting sustainable living in the community through various programs and services.

In 2022, the Council launched "Sustainable Us," a community-based initiative addressing global warming and providing clear information for sustainable living. The work needed spans multiple Council areas, emphasizing the need for collaboration internally to facilitate community-wide action.

"Sustainable Us" offers workshops, events, videos, and other initiatives to the Wingecarribee community. In 2024, the program introduces "Earth Flix: Cinema 4 Change," a series of free, monthly environmentally themed films screened at the Empire Cinema, Bowral, followed by panels featuring local speakers.

By offering clear and relevant community resources, we aim to empower you to live more sustainably and reduce your environmental footprint.
